Apple Pickin' Time

   Leaves flutter through the autumn air
        In between the trees the light dapples
   The butterflies have  long gone
        Its time to pick those apples

    Pick one for your sweetheart
     A golden or a delicious red
 And if they are too tart
   Give her a sweet one instead

   After having some apple pie
     Take a stroll neath the autumn sky
  Feel the crisp air on your face
    And listen as autumn winds sigh

    Leaves flutter through the autumn air
 In between the trees the light dapples
    The butterflies have long gone
 Its time to pick those apples
      With many varieties to suit your desire
  You can  tell all your friends
           about the red fuji,  granny smith,  and empire
   Cause its apple picking time again

    You're very good at depicting this time of year, the autumn... in your other poems, as well. I love your fourth stanza, the "leaves" that "flutter" and the colours that flow throughout the poem Archontoula

    You must have been in Washington State recently. They grow the best apples there. Everything here is delightfully descriptive.
